the dove challenge – a review and $500 spa finder giveaway

Grin. Confession time. I am was a wash with water only kind of gal. For some reason, I’ve forgotten the fact that with each passing day I’m also getting a day older and have kind of neglected some important things like skin care. And now, today, when I’m inbetween those 30s and 40s but getting closer to the latter {shhhh} I’ve begun to realize that I must start taking care of that sun kissed skin of mine and need products that work.

Enter Dove Body Wash. With the tagline: Visibly more beautiful skin from a body wash. Enter me. In need of some serious summer skin help – after all there aren’t any winter coats and snowpants and boots and all of that to grab when it’s over 90 degrees outside. Plus, I love that word renewing. I’m in the need of some skin renewing over here.

I am so thankful that I got a chance to review this revolutionary premium body wash from Dove. Because, again, confession – I’m the gal that can spend a good 24.3 minutes in Target standing in the body wash aisle trying to figure out what to buy and probably sending the Target security guy to head over and check out what that gal with the diapers, gluten free cereal, t-shirt, 2 pounds of grapes, and packs of 25cent Back to School Crayons is doing stalled in the beauty section. Yeah, that would be me.

So, I thought to myself, this is a good chance for me to try a product, that I’m needing, and it’s a product that I already know and have high opinion of. Send me the Dove! And they did – the brown ups truck shows up, hands the package, the kids jump up and down and there it is – my Dove. And perfect timing, as we were going to the lake where they have hard water {or no power}and most times I come home with skin that is dry and scratchy like the sand we’ve been playing in.
Not this time. Nope.
Difference? Dove Visible Care Body Wash.

The challenge? To see if there was any difference in my skin in one week – and grin – I chose the week at the lake. The hardest week of the year on my skin – sun, swimming, hard water – and Dove won. I came home better than I left and I’m thanking it to NutriumMoisture technology – that’s what they call it – I call it amazing good stuff that works and makes me feel great. And young.

So Dove, you’ve convinced this momma of seven who used to get stuck in Target trying to figure out what body wash to buy – that now I’m sticking you in my cart. 

Want to grab your own bottle of Dove to try? Grab this coupon for $1 off – Visit Dove® VisibleCare® to get a coupon for $1 off! – and feel like a coupon diva. Because, sigh, my other thing at Target is hating the  mumbling no when they ask if I have any coupons – and now you can proudly say why yes, yes I do and hand them over your Dove coupon.

    It asks on the link to answer the question the blogger asks on the post – I couldn’t find anything to answer except the question: Want to grab your own bottle of Dove to try? – so I replied to your question: Yes! 🙂

    Hi Lisa,
    I forgot to add the link! Ackk!! I’ve added it now – and if you’d leave your answer on the blogher site that would be awesome.
    Lesson for me: don’t autoschedule a post and then do a massive costco run.

    Christ Himself gives us these promises. Know that I’m here praying!
    Revelation 21:5-7 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
